    There were problems with the original thread in that it disappeared and could not be reinstated.

    So a new thread was created and we all started again, unfortunately that thread also seems to have joined it's predecessor.

    So here's a new one. We need to hear about Suki's lamb casserole and Island Maid is back from Amsterdam and must have delights to tell us about.

    Maybe if the old one can be found then this can be merged?

    Anyway without further ado...

    Doing the first proper roast since the Christmas turkey! So have a small joint of pork,roast potatoes and parsnips, little new potatoes, sprouts,carrots and kale with homemade apple sauce from some windfalls and lots of gravy. Just two of us to feed and never any waste in this house, the left over pork will be used up with egg,chips and homemade chutney tomorrow

    The lamb steak I got out of freezer turned into enough for 2 meals so had one with cabbage(freezer)mash and roasted peppers(freezer). The rest I have marinaded overnight for Moroccan Lamb using cupboard spices and remaining dates. Cooked in SC and tonight will re-heat and have with couc cous. Never had before but quite looking forward to it.

    Boiled some rigatoni pasta last night, made a HM 2 cheese sauce and popped in a casserole dish mixed together, let cool then put a cheese topping on and popped into oven , served with garlic bread – so yummy. Leftovers for tonight and HM soup for lunch…vegetarian few days without intent!

    Supper tonight is going to be a 'pot pie' which is a stew cooked in a pan on the hob with a 'hat' of suet pastry that just fits the pan cooked on top of it at the end of the simmering time.
    Thumpers mum was right - if you can't find anything nice to say don't say anything at all!

    Love the sound of your pot pie Mrs Lurche, must try it out myself sometime. My Nan used to make a slab of suet pasty flavoured with either chopped onions or mixed herbs baked in the oven till nice and golden then served up with your meal of stew or casserole.

    Our meal tonight is the remains of the roast pork joint with oven chips,fried eggs and homemade chutney,so nothing to prepare.


    My Dad always said the same as Thumpers Mother, if you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.

    Basic cauliflower cheese with some roasted tomatoes and stir fried greens with garlic & chilli. Can’t be bothered doing the Ottolenghi version which would be nicer but as I said.... can’t be bothered.

    Was at home for lunch so had a BLT. Made with some toasted sourdough a thick slice of smoked bacon and a slice beef tomato with the really green outer leaves of an iceberg lettuce .... topped with a smearing of homemade mayonnaise and twists of black pepper. Luckily only had 1 slice of bacon left as I might have had 2 sandwiches =8O

    It was ok but kinda glad that's that done now. Not sure what tomorrow is, I bought some spinach today as had a hankering for some and planning to actually make that lasagne but I might have some sauteed with some fried sliced potatoes and the other no bull burger tomorrow. Still trying to limit the food shopping and use things up atm.

    Out with work, carvery. There was a root vegetable bake that I'm going to try to make at home, it was just layers of parsnip, squash, onions and sweet potato in a vegetable stock finished with potato slices and baked and browned. It was very tasty.

    About to put beef bones in SC for the day, also bought some lamb bones now in freezer. Bought YS corned beef hash and a YS mac n cheese, one for tonight the other tomorrow so not in freezer but the YS chineese chicken and dip has gone in. Moroccan stew was quite nice, may make again as I have the spices and can be made with any meat. Off to peel onion/chop carrot/start broth.

    Worked the morning in DD1s garden, HWK was digging the veg bed and got so hungry that we called at the garden centre on the way home and he had steak and ale pie, chips and peas and I had an omelette, chips and salad so supper will be something much lighter tonight probably some home made soup and toast.
